What happened here?

I found this fly covered by a white fluff with its wings in an unnatural position (and quite dead, needless to say) on the underside of a tomato leaf. When I zoomed in on the photos the substance appeared to be a type of mold. Mold is close ... a search of the Internet revealed that the culprit is a fungus ... Entomophthora muscae.
